Subject [jira] [Commented] (DERBY-6462) Provide more information about database name and path syntax
Date Fri, 28 Feb 2014 15:06:21 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-6462?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13915843#comment-13915843

Kim Haase commented on DERBY-6462:

Thanks, Dag! 

So it looks as if we can actually put things a bit more simply? What we need to say, I gather,
is something like "neither the database name nor the name of a directory in the database path
can contain a colon (although the colon after the drive name in a Windows path is allowed)."
Is this what you say is an implementation bug? If so, maybe it's a feature until we have an
issue for it.

I can fix the "resolved path" language in the 3 topics that use it.

The material about slashes after "file:" actually applies only to the policy files, and what
we need to do there is just to correct the errors. The syntax for that is specified in the
Java guide linked to from the "Granting permissions to Derby" topic and we don't need to cover

I will work on another patch. Let me know if anything I'm proposing seems off.

> Except for initial Windows drive letters (e.g. K:/derby), colons break Derby.
> Windows can't have colons in directory of file names, so this is a Unix issue.
